For TH LNG GDBY choreographer and visual artist Tuur Marinus starts from the legendary goodbye concert “The Long Goodbye” that electro-rockband LCD Soundsystem played in 2011 in New York.

While 9 dancers interweave their bodies into complex choreographic movement-tapestries, their voices they create sound patterns in which abstract versions of the original songs appear.

This results in a dance-music combination that is both elegant and clumsy – lyrical and disturbed; precise and undefined.

TH LNG GDBY is both a tribute to a grand moment in popmusic history as well as an intriguing meditation on past and future ways of intense togetherness.

Tuur worked as a dancer for a.o. Vincent Dunoyer, They Are Here and Fabian Barba. Together with the contemporary dance collective Busy Rocks he created a.o. "Dominos and Butterflies"). In his own name he made the performances "Still Animals" and now "TH LNG GDBY" among others.
